The London fryer has the best fish in the bay, it is the only place i can go to that has skate on its menu. As well as various other selections of fish, it goes perfect with their superb chips and mushy peas. For anyone, who does not enjoy the cardboard boxes, all you have to do is ask at... More

this used to be an excellent fish and chip shop but now they have stopped wrapping their fish and chips in paper which makes them soggy and leathery. I will not be going here again

Not sat in the warmer getting past its best. Yes occasionally you have to wait at busy times... More

We've been coming here for the past 5 years. The fish is always really fresh and the chips are lovely. The staff are really friendly and helpful and the seasonal decorations are always worth popping in for. Would highly recommend the take away & cafe.

Tried this place about 5 years ago and the chips were undercooked, re-visited at the weekend and it was delicious, really crispy batter on the cod and chips were lovely. No doubt my first visit was s one off, going to buy there from now on

A very busy fish & chip shop, with seating area. Staff are always friendly & welcoming. Their menu is very comphrensive & you can have your fish cooked in many different ways, I like my fish coated in breadcrumbs not batter - no problem. The portion sizes are good value for money.

I often try to miss the busy Friday's but, yesterday my family and I was in need of great fish and chips. I was greeted with great service and it was very pleasant watching the young girl and older women work so well together on the front. As always the food was delicious and the wait for the Friday didn't... More
